Title: Nortel Ethernet Routing Switches 5500, 1600, 8300 and 8600 Evaluation of Resilient Routing Switches for Real-Time Multimedia Traffic with Microsoft Live Communications Server 2005 and Nortel MCS 5100

Publication date:   02 February 2007
Document number:    207171

Abstract:

Nortel commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate its Ethernet Routing Switch 5500, 1600, 8300 and 8600 series switches for their support of Nortel’s Split Multi-Link Trunking (SMLT) protocol when deployed at the network core.

The series of tests called for demonstrating that each ERS model could be deployed as core SMLT Inter-Switch Trunk (IST) switches to provide excellent resilience in the face of link and node outages. Tests also measured the impact of active link and switch failures on the voice quality for VoIP traffic and on the stability of multimedia user sessions using Nortel Multimedia Collaboration Server (MCS) 5100 and Microsoft Live Communications Server (LCS) 2005. Tests were conducted in October 2006.
